Harvard University's CNS houses, in 85,000-ft2 Laboratory for Integrated Science and Engineering (LISE), shared nano fabrication and characterization facilities, maintained by technical staff supported by Harvard. This is a major investment by Harvard to promote interdisciplinary research on small structures in areas including Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Biology, and Chemistry. CNS facilities include: 1) clean rooms for soft lithography and for optical & e-beam lithography equipped with e-beam lithography systems. Clean room facilities also include etching, deposition, and other aspects of nanofabrication, 2) imaging laboratory that includes SEMs, STEM, & TEM, and 3) advanced materials synthesis and processing equipment.
